The exterior of the L'Ultime is inspired by the original Chiron's, unveiled back in 2016.


The original Chiron, which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016, featured a combination of Atlantic Blue and French Racing Blue. For the 500th and final Chiron, Molsheim's Sur Mesure department has revisited this paint scheme. The L’Ultime gets individually painted front and rear wheels that match the bodywork’s hues, and the bespoke Bugatti macaron emblem on the horseshoe grille is accented in blue.
